My skills as an illustrator are still mediocre. They are ever improving, but some things are much more tricky to get the hang of. My proportions are good. There isn't much improvement I need to be a decent illustrator in terms of proportions. I am really starting to understand what to exaggerate when drawing and sketching for animation. But my line quality still licks the sweat off the balls of the suck squirrel. Fortunately, my figure drawing class is really making me focus on this. It also makes me really focus on composition and placement. But this is all with charcoal. Pencil or pen & ink? Who knows. I'm OK with a pencil, pen I still need work on.
In Class Drawings
Rushed the rendering
Needs more work on foreshortening
Drapery sucks on small testes
Too dark in back
Didn't finish the hands
The shading on the face was a bad idea
The drapery shading is awful
That sure is a small head
The inner contours are total chicken scratch crap
So I know what I need to work on improving. I have progressed very much in the last 2 years. So in another 2 years all be more than decent.
